Keep the Eastern Airlines Brand in the Air!

This petition had 619 supporters

In 2015, Eastern Airlines was reborn after a 20 year absence as a charter carrier to Cuba and other parts of the Carribean with long term plans to return to scheduled service. In the summer of 2017 Eastern was sold to Swift Air after a time of declining revenue. Eastern as a separate company was no more. In September 2017, Swift surrendered Eastern's AOC to the FAA.

At this point there are two planes that are still in the Eastern livery. Swift is deciding about the future use of the Eastern brand. Former employees and fans would like Swift to keep the name in some form because it is a special brand that should be treated with care and respect. There are many ways that the brand can be used. One idea is to make Eastern a low-cost scheduled carrier to secondary markets in the USA, as well as the Caribbean and South America. We are calling for Swift to find a creative way to keep the brand alive either through their own efforts or to sell the brand to someone who will keep the "Wings of Man" in the sky.

When you sign, please leave the town, state/province and zip code as well. Thanks!
